Principal Announcement

Dear Hoover Community,

I would like to take this opportunity to officially introduce myself and share my excitement about being appointed as the next principal of the Hoover Math and Science Academy for the 2018-19 school year. I am looking forward to working with the Hoover students, staff and community to continue to ensure the success of each and every one of our students.

 This will be my eleventh year as a principal in District 54. I spent the past five years as the principal at Lakeview Elementary School and the five years before that as the principal of Michael Collins Elementary School. Prior to serving as principal, I was an assistant principal, instructional coach and teacher. Due to my years of experience in the district, I am familiar with the curriculum, instructional practices and culture that make all District 54 schools great places to send your children. This background will allow me to immediately focus on the specific, individual needs of your students as we begin the 2018-19 school year this fall.

 his school year and next, I will be working closely with Mrs. Ankrom to ensure a smooth and seamless transition for the 2018-19 school year. I am grateful for her outstanding leadership during this transition. I am confident that together we will foster an environment that will continue to lead the Hoover Math and Science Academy on a path for great success.

 I live in Lemont with my husband, Steve and our three children – Chad (12th grade), Zach (11th grade) and Kate (8th grade). As a parent and a principal, I know that the achievements of students are the results of a strong partnership between the school and the community, and I am excited to join your team! I look forward to collaborating with you on your child’s success in every aspect of the learning environment.

 I look forward to getting to know the entire Hoover community in the upcoming months. If you wish to contact me, I can be reached via email at I look forward to hearing from you!

Herbie High Fives – March 9, 2018

The following students names were drawn from the Herbie High Five Eggs today. Each week students earn Herbie High Fives by displaying proper PBIS expected behaviors at school. When they receive a high five card they put them in the blue eggs located in the main office and the Library. Each week Mrs. Ankrom pulls names from these eggs. Students then go down to his office to receive their prize after announcements are over.  Congratulations!

Classroom of the Week – 6th Grade Room 212

The sixth graders in room 212 have been hard at work in all subject areas!  We’ve been focusing on writing narratives based on true events.  We also learned about the different golden ages of ancient cultures, such as ancient Greece, Rome, Egypt, and China.  For our last social studies unit, we took a trip down the silk road to see how it influenced life and trade hundreds of years ago.  Finally, we were very excited to take a grade-level trip to see the musical Les Miserables!

Chromebooks are here in 5th Grade!

Students in Mrs. Benson’s, Mr Schaupp’s and Mrs. Villarreal’s fifth grade classes are now using Chrome books as part of the pilot program.  They have been trained in how to properly use them and are already having fun and learning a lot!
